Today I am Thankful for...My Grandparents
|Grandmommy with the girls|
|Papa's first meeting with Kate|
I played on the farm with my seven cousins at my paternal grandparent's home. Granny gave us the tools we needed to build the best forts inside and out. Papa took us on tractor rides and let us go barefoot in the dirt picking up potatoes behind his plow. They taught us how to love each other and love the Lord foremost.
Not only am I an only child, but on my mom's side I am an only grandchild. As such, I had my Grandmommy and Grandaddy's undivided attention. When I turned 16, they bought me my first car (brand new). My Grandaddy was my "Buddy" (to learn more about him, check out this book). My Grandmommy was always the one to sew up anything. I called her the "fixer-upper."
Though Granny and Grandaddy have gone on to be with the Lord, my girls still have the opportunity to know my Papa and Grandmommy a bit. I am so thankful for all of the memories and the heritage that they have passed down to me and subsequently my girls.
